- Coldplay knows that most of us without millions of dollars and superstar wives have it bad because of this recession thing. So, to help out the people who want to see them live, but can't, the band is giving away a nine-track live CD LeftRightLeftRightLeft... for free.
- Michael Jackson has skin cancer! Wait, er, no he doesn't.
- Getting back to their punk roots, Blink-182 surprised fans by playing its first show together in four years... at a party for the new T-Moble Sidekick. Now that's punk rock.
